“Does not exist anymore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 April 2014 via mobile

Was excellent but does not exist anymore. The whole Markthalle is closed, the place being refurbished to host a shop.

“Service was better than food but...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2013

If you come from a family of food lovers, never expect unanimous opinions, unless everybody in the gang is real hungry and all of you choose the same option.

Sushi was good for me, very good for my daughter and brother, and excellent for my wife and my sister in law. Nevertheless, we all agreed that service was outstanding. Not a cheap dinner to eat in a basement, but partying in the markethall of Bern is quite an experience.

“Japan in the basement”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2012

Located in the basement of 'Markthalle' (market hall) near the train station, a very popular spot in Bern. Oustanding sushi, excellent service, yet slightly overpriced. And eating in a basement-like atmosphere doesn't give extra points. But I'll be back !

“Exceptional sushi / sashimi”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

As mentioned by a previous reviewer, the Markthalle is actually a large expanse of restaurants in a semi-enclosed setting, with a somewhat discreet entrance on the Bubenbergplatz near the "glass canopy". The whole Markthalle is worth a quick visit, as it is crammed with restaurants offering Wok, Thai, Indian, South Indian, "oriental", Mexican and of course Japanese, among others. The service at Kabuki is stupendous, the fish is as fresh as can be, and the variety is amazing. Of course, the prices do tend to be on the steeper side. It is nice to sit in the "terrace" area (i.e. outside the restaurant but inside the Markthalle). Kabuki is a worthy contender among the best sushi places in Switzerland, based on the quality of the fish. Nevertheless the setting remains relaxed and very informal. A pleasing combination overall.

“Centrally located good japanese”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 September 2012

Went alone for dinner at around 2100h during a very hot summer day during the week (thank god it seems to have been airconditioned so it was pleasant inside).
I had a Salad and Nigiri Sushi / Makis. Service was quick (there were few people so no idea when it is busy), fish was fresh and tasty. The slices on the Nigiris could have been a bit thicker ;)

The Menu had a good selection of other things but I did not get around to trying them.

To get to the restaurant in the "Markthalle" you go inside and then downstairs. There are many other places in the Markhalle, some of which are rather plain (takeaway pizza and kebab), which detract a bit from the first impression.

I look forward to going back the next time I am in Bern.
